After saving a baby deer from drowning, a service dog returns the next day to express gratitude.

The dog had walked far because it was June 2nd at the lake. The large lake nearby offered plenty of opportunity for an adventurous dog.

Ralph quickly came across Harley on the water. The dog wasn’t alone either.

Harley proved to be an excellent swimmer thanks to his retriever heritage. It seems that retriever breeds and hybrids cannot get over their love of the water.

This was not an option because the fawn’s mother was nearby and eager to reunite with her youngster. Harley, you may have spared its life, but you’re no deer!

The doe circled about in search of her young.

To Dorn’s yard, she had followed the fawn’s bleats.

Dorn had a complete view. He was aware that his mother would take over at this point. While leaving the fawn outside for its mother to retrieve, he led Harley inside.

The two separated after being reunited.

The following morning, Dorn spotted Harley hurriedly hopping from window to window. Dorn opened the front door to check out the thrilling scene outside.

Dorn heard a fawn bleating as Harley dashed for the tree line.

That sounds like it belongs in an old Disney film, doesn’t it?

Before the fawn left permanently, they shared one final moment of snuggling and nose-to-nose contact. Goodbye, buddy!
